Chess Wizard!

1st March 2016
Congratulations to Elliot in Yr 6, who helped the Somerset Under 11s team to victory in a Five Counties chess tournament at the weekend.  
 
Elliot played three one hour, forty minute matches and won all three! The Under 11s beat Wales for the first time in years.
 
Elliot only started playing chess in Yr 5 when he joined the Chess Club at Hillcrest.  Pete Saunders, who ran the club at the time, quickly spotted his talent and suggested he joined the Wednesday night chess club at Clifton College.  
 
Now he's playing for the county!  
 
Well done Elliot.... we're so proud of you!
